The Nature of This Blog

In this Blog, I will explore the nature of creativity from many different angles of approach. More particularly, I will focus mainly on creativity as it relates to artistic expression. In doing this, it will be the point of this blog to examine the value of this kind of creativity, why it matters, its roles in life. Additionally, the point will be to define what artistic creativity is through the explorations of its roles within life and how it seems to matter in many different ways, how it is met and how it meets us and the significance this has.

Having laid the foundation of a philosophical yet also practical examination of creativity, and artistic creativity specifically, it will be the great ambition of this blog to discover how it can be for a person to approach creativity so that it is possible to be more creatively aware, so that it is possible to be more creatively expressive. This blog, will be then, a pragmatic exercise in the openness of consciousness–approaching the opening of new possibilities of awareness and the expression that can perhaps come from this.

It will be necessary to ask: How it is possible to be artistically creative?  What is creative expression? How it is possible to be more creative? What is the relationship between creativity and expression? How much of creativity’s potential possibilities are realized in expression for a person who is creating? How it is possible to be more expressive? And, finally–for now–what is the relationship between creativity and meaning?
